A work stoppage at Goldcorp Inc. Inc.'s Cerro Negro gold-silver mine in Argentina has come to an end after the gold miner agreed to a "conciliation process."
Goldcorp said March 14 that it would hold talks with the Asociación Obrera Minera Argentina, a union, and government officials that will focus on worker safety, permitting compliance and environmental protection. It did not lay out a timeline for the talks.
The stoppage began March 8 and shut down operations, which Goldcorp said are now ramping back up.
The labor action comes amid a planned merger between Goldcorp and Newmont Mining Corp. that is expected to close in the fourth quarter.
